GENEALOGY OVERVIEWS and FINDING AIDS

March 22, 2011 Version of My Ancestors:

This is my best attempt to show the interrelationships of the families on my mother's mother's side: Yecht, Robinson, Schlager, Nelson, Chandler, Cook, and Filler.
This is, of course, based on the work of Joe Chandler.

And then there are the fragments of families which would seem to have a common ancestor just beyond the information horizon.

There are a number of loose ends here:
Doba Tsipra Altstein and Jojchem Chaim Altstein are presumably cousins. His parents were Uanocha Altstein & Elka Michaelovitch

Alan Knecht's great-great grandmother was Sura Cypra Altstein (1837-1903). Her parents were David Altsztein and Elka Drozdowicz. She married David-Hersh Knecht. She may have been a sister to my great grandfather Efrem Altstein, making Alan a third cousin once removed to me.

In the spring of 2013 my first cousin Richard Thorner and Paul's son Rick Thorner each took the Y-DNA test and learned that they had zero degrees of separation! This suggests that they have a common ancestor just beyond our information horizon. We are both related to Molly Thorner Russek. Paul inherited a document which lists, in Yissish, Gedalia and his kids.
